Great view

Lovely service, very nice view ... an oasis in the middle of town. As everywhere else in Maputo, it is overpriced.

This is the slowest most dysfunctional restaurant I have been to in Maputo. The food is tasty, but not worth the 45 minute wait, unless you have time to waste. Acacia is a pretty view and nothing more.

This place it's located on a very beautiful spot. It's managed by one of the finest hotels in town but the service it's not so good. Some times you wait a lot to be served and it's very frustrating the fact they don't serve natural juices on a place like that... Could be a much better place!

With a terrific view and a garden for the kids, this could be an iconic place in Maputo. The service is terrible (you have to wait ages sometimes). I complained once, and I saw others do the same. The food is average and most of the time the ice creams that they have are always the same boring, chocolate, strawberry... More

great place for snacks and breakfast. Evenings or mornings has always beautiful view. It's a clean place and has a big garden and playing stuff for children. Prices are reasonable. Good place to visit.

Cafe Accacia is a great place to eat small things, drink and relax with your friends. A place to be for a long time, enjoying the view and talking with your friends, or for a short time, drinking coffee or milkshake. Although the service might take a while until noticing you want to order, the amazing view will compensate. Next... More

This is the place for a coffee, a light lunch or a glass of wine or beer - with one of the best viws of Maputo. I went to Maputo with two colleagues and after meetings we usually had our lunch there. The food is maybe not very exciting but they do very decent french fries with their pregos or... More

Really, it's a beautiful spot. Very relaxing. Love the architecture, love the setting. But the coffee is only so so.
